GM recalls Chevy Express, GMC Savana over rollaway concern

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

Filed under: , , , , , ,

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall notice for a small number of General Motors fullsize vans due to possible rollaway concerns. On certain 2013 Chevrolet Express and 2013 GMC Savana models, it is possible to remove the key from the ignition without the shifter being in park.

Only 980 total units are being affected by this recall, and GM is fixing the issue by replacing the ignition cylinder and associated keys. Affected Chevy vans were built during most of November and December while its GMC counterpart was only built for a week in November. The recall goes into effect on January 23, and to find out if your vehicle applies to the recall, the GM and NHTSA contact numbers can be found on the official recall notice, which is posted below.

Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo gets its driving debut

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

Filed under: , , , , , , , ,

Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo driving shot - rear three-quarter view, video screencap

We’ve been fans of the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Concept ever since we first laid eyes on it at the Paris Motor Show back in September. And just when we finally managed to get that sensational rump out of our minds, Porsche has gone and released a video of the sexy beast in action. The video also features the German automaker’s general manager of advanced design style, Mitja Borkert, as well as Porsche Design Studio chief Michael Mauer. The two speak on the themes of the Sport Turismo, namely “form follows function.” They also state the obvious; that the Panamera Sport Turismo is instantly recognizable as a Porsche yet simultaneously different from any other Stuttgart stormer before it.

Also discussed is the 335-horsepower, supercharged V6 powerplant, working in unison with a 95-horsepower electric motor in a parallel hybrid setup. Porsche states that the Sport Turismo has a 30-km (18.6 mile) pure-electric range. We are also treated to various shots of the futuristic instrument cluster and center control console. The former consists of a large TFT screen with video side view monitors, while the latter is a combination of touch-capacitive and touchscreen controls.

While visually stunning, the important mission statement of this vehicle is perhaps best summed up by Mauer, “This Sport Turismo Concept is as well, showing that there is no contradiction between sportiness and functionality.” Though wowed by the driving footage in the video below, Mauer’s statement evokes a combination that we can get behind – especially when the resulting concept car solves the production Panamera hatchback’s unfortunate rear end so beautifully.

2012 Vauxhall Vectra

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

The Vauxhall Vectra is also known as the Chevrolet Vectra in North America, the Holden Vectra in Australia and as the Opel Vectra in other parts of the world. It is classified and sold a large four-door family saloon, estate or as a 5-door hatchback powered by various choices of petrol or diesel engines mated to a five or six-speed manual gearbox. We start with the petrol in choices of the following: a 140bhp 1.8-litre ECOTEC with VVT, a 172bhp 2.0 turbo, a 155bhp 2.2-litre inline-4, and a 2.8-litre 250bhp V6 turbo. For the diesels there’s a 1.9-litre CDTi diesel with 120bhp or 150bhp, a 175bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged inline-4, and an available 181bhp 3.0 turbocharged V6 CDTi.

Among the amenities and safety features included in the Vauxhall Vectra includes leather and aluminum inserts and trimming, AM/FM radio with CD, electric windows and mirrors, air conditioning, power assisted steering with cruise control, front fog lights, 17” aluminum wheels with ABS, driver and front passenger airbags, among many other. Prices start at £14,750 for the 1.8 Vectra Exclusiv hatchback, £15,750 for the Estate, and £17,995 for the Signum Exclusiv.

Vauxhall has followed the recipe of not changing anything that is working well and the current Vectra model is testament to this for it has indeed seemingly worked well for the company, so much so as not to merit a makeover for the time being. The 2012 Vauxhall Vectra currently available for sale in the UK market is actually a carryover from the previous model year and is virtually unchanged. Since there are no redesign in the horizon for the Vectra (although there’s a rumoured replacement), loyal fans of this vehicle may still get to own the different models and trims that British families and even UK fleet car companies have found serviceable though the years

Porsche offers design walkthrough of Panamera Sport Turismo

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Filed under: , , , , ,

The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo was arguably the best concept car of 2012, and Porsche has been building upon that momentum by teasing us with videos of its first-ever station wagon design. After showing us some driving shots of the Sport Turismo, Porsche released a more in-depth and behind-the-scenes look at what it took to take the Panamera shooting brake from a full-scale clay model to the final product we saw on stage at the Paris Motor Show. In the video, Michael Mauer, Porsche style director, and Mitja Borkert, general manager advanced design style, both give a little insight about what went into creating the Sport Turismo Concept.

More than just a station wagon version of the Panamera, the Sport Turismo has a totally distinctive look nose to tail. Some of the key elements the designers touch on in the video include the Porsche-signature raised front fenders, the wide rear shoulders, the front wing inspired by the 918 Spyder, and even some of the car’s unique touches, including the headlights and the three-dimensional “Porsche” lettering across the liftgate made from glass. One of the more exciting aspects of the concept – which is sadly just glossed over in the video – is the rear liftgate spoiler that features “variable aerodynamics” that sounds like it acts similar to the retractable spoiler on the current Panamera.

We still don’t know if the Panamera Sport Turismo will make it into production, but if you want to see what went into creating this exciting concept car and see the different build phases designers went through to create the Paris show car, check out the video by scrolling below.

Mercedes-Benz thanks its 9 million Facebook fans

Mercedes-Benz has nine million Facebook fans. That’s like every single member of genus Homo in Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and Dallas clicking the friend button. To throw its kisses to the crowd, the Stuttgart brand put together a video led by Finnish director, Anssi Määttä, that combines light painting and the CLS Shooting Brake.

Two isn’t necessarily a trend but Ferrari also whipped up a video to thank its horde of virtual pals, of which it has an extra million on M-B. But this one from Mercedes it isn’t just a “Danke,” it’s a “Danke schön.” And then some. Feel the love in the video below.

Ford shows off commercial version of new Transit Connect

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Filed under: , , ,

We recently showed you the updated Ford Transit Connect Wagon in all its refreshed glory. Well here is the new 2014 Transit Connect (note the lack of “Wagon” in name, for its commercially minded purpose), and it’s the small Ford van of choice for your tougher jobs. Ford says this van is ideally suited for small businesses and fleets looking to prioritize fuel economy. Two gasoline-powered four-cylinder engines have been announced, as well as the availability of compressed natural gas-powered mill with the CNG prep package. The base engine is a 2.5-liter DOHC inline-four, while the uprated engine is a 1.6-liter EcoBoost inline-four. Ford is anticipating 30-plus miles per gallon from the latter. Power is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission with overdrive.

The Transit Connect comes with all of Ford’s latest collection of goodies, including an available 6.5-inch touchscreen with Sync and MyFordTouch, as well as Ford’s MyKey programable key system. However, the key feature of the Transit Connect is capability, and this van appears to have it in spades, including a max 1,600-pound payload and over 130 cubic feet of cargo space. When properly equipped, it can also tow up to 2,000 pounds.

Ford sees global commercial vehicle sales growing by 4.8 million units next year, and wants to capitalize on that by employing its One Ford program. To that end it will be selling the Transit Connect in 66 international markets, making it a truly global vehicle. If your interest has been piqued by the Transit Connect, feel free to read on to the press release below.

2014 Mazda6 family melds efficiency, sexiness

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Filed under: , , , , , ,

2014 Mazda6 Wagon at the Paris Motor Show

The all-new 2014 Mazda6 Wagon has officially bowed under the lights of the 2012 Paris Motor Show along with its fresh-from-Moscow twin, the Mazda6 sedan. Both machines now boast a full suite of Skyactiv efficiency technologies for the first time, and as such, are lighter than their predecessors.

The wagon debuts with a 173-horsepower 2.2-liter Skyactiv diesel engine in two power configurations, both of which conform to Euro 6 emission standards without the burden urea injection. Mazda isn’t saying exactly what sort of fuel economy we can expect from the wagon, but earlier estimations put the diesel sedan in the 43-miles-per-gallon highway range. Expect similar from the five-door.

Buyers will also be able to purchase the 2014 Mazda6 with a direct-injection gasoline 2.0-liter four-cylinder good for 148 horsepower as well as a 2.5-liter gasoline direct injection engine with 189 horsepower. Like the four-door, the long roof will make use of the Mazda i-ELOOP brake regeneration system. Check out the full press release below.
